Resident permits are available for use of eligible applicants to park their vehicles in resident parking bays (or shared-use bays) within an indicated Controlled Parking Zone at any time. Residents can only apply for a permit to park in the zone that they live in, and it must be for a vehicle registered at that address.
Residential parking permit charges are based on vehicle CO2 emissions or the vehicle's engine capacity indicated at the time of the vehicle registration - this information is available on a vehicle's V5C document (log book).
If you live in a car-free development, you do not qualify for an on-street parking permit.
Residents who are blue badge holders are able to park for the entire controlled period of a Controlled Parking Zone with their badges displayed hence no longer require a resident permit. In light of this, there are no concessionary permit for blue badge holders.
To apply for a resident parking permit you must follow these steps:
Step 1. Supply the appropriate supporting document:
- The full logbook. The details of these documents must match that of the applicant address and vehicle registration.
- Company (or Hired) Vehicles - Residents in possession of company vehicle must provide an authorisation letter from the company, giving permission for the vehicle to be used at the applicant's home address. The letter must confirm vehicle registration as well as its CO2 emissions or the vehicle’s engine capacity.
Step 2. Complete the application form
